It’s God ‘Who Compelled Putin’ to Attack Ukraine – CBN Founder


91-year-old top American prophetic televangelist, Pat Robertson recently said that Russian President Vladimir Putin was “compelled by God” in his decision to invade Ukraine.

On Monday, he said Putin was simply following God’s wishes when Russia invaded Ukraine — to fulfill a biblical prophecy. “I think you can say, well, Putin’s out of his mind. Yes, maybe so. But at the same time, he’s being compelled by God. He went into Ukraine, but that wasn’t his goal. His goal was to move against Israel, ultimately”.

He used verses from the book of Ezekiel that note how nations will come together to rise up against Israel, suggesting that Ukraine is merely a “staging ground” for an eventual Armageddon battle.

He added: “God is getting ready to do something amazing. And that will be fulfilled”.


In 1980, he said knew exactly when the end was coming. “I guarantee you by the end of 1982 there is going to be a judgment on the world”. But it didn’t happen.

In 2006, he predicted a possible tsunami devastating the Pacific Northwest, which never happen.

According to his 1990 book, “The New Millennium,” Robertson predicted that the world would end on April 29, 2007. It didn’t happen.

In October 2020, he said God told him that Donald Trump would win the presidential election. Mr. Trump didn’t win.

Though we cannot confirm at press time if he had other prophecies or predictions that came to pass.

Marion Gordon “Pat” Robertson (born March 22, 1930) is an American media mogul, televangelist, political commentator, former Republican presidential candidate, and former Southern Baptist minister.

Robertson advocates a conservative Christian ideology and is known for his past activities in Republican party politics. He is associated with the Charismatic Movement within Protestant evangelicalism. He serves as chancellor and CEO of Regent University and chairman of the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN). Until 2021 he appeared daily on The 700 Club, CBN’s flagship television program.

On Robertson’s own account, he was not a serious Christian until he underwent personal difficulty. He graduated near the top of his class at Yale Law School in 1955 but failed the New York bar exam. Failing the bar cost Robertson opportunities at post-graduate employment, and in the ensuing months of what he later described as a disappointment, embarrassment, and unemployment, he became a born-again Christian and began a career as a minister.

Spanning over five decades, Robertson has had a career as the founder of several major organizations and corporations as well as a university: The Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), the International Family Entertainment Inc. (ABC Family Channel), Regent University, the American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ), the Founders Inn and Conference Center, the Christian Coalition, an L-1011 Flying Hospital, Operation Blessing International Relief and Development Corporation, and CBN Asia.

He is a best-selling author and the host of The 700 Club, a Christian News and TV program broadcast live weekdays on Freeform (formerly ABC Family) via satellite from CBN studios, as well as on channels throughout the United States, and on CBN network affiliates worldwide.

Robertson announced his retirement at the age of 91 from the 700 Club in October 2021, on the sixtieth anniversary of the first telecast on October 1, 1961, of what eventually became CBN.

The son of U.S. Senator A. Willis Robertson, Robertson was a Southern Baptist and was active as an ordained minister with that denomination for many years, but holds to a charismatic theology not traditionally common among Southern Baptists.

He unsuccessfully campaigned to become the Republican Party’s nominee in the 1988 presidential election. As a result of his seeking political office, he no longer serves in an official role for any church but continued as the main host for his series, The 700 Club until October 2021, advocating for religion to this day. His personal influence on media and financial resources make him a recognized, influential, and controversial public voice for conservative Christianity in the United States and around the world.
